Wow, it's great reading these! I was born in 1975 in Chicago, but raised in Texas. I had My LIttle Ponies, Peaches-n-Cream Barbie, one Cabbage Patch Kid, Rainbow Bright, Care Bears, a light bright, Fashion Plates (God, does anyone else remember that??). I was raised in a Christian school and a strict Baptist church, though... there were outrageous dress standards, but I was a rebel and tried to get away with as much as I could! LOL- I didn't wear pants as a result of this upbringing; but I did have the big hair of the 90s, wore 2 pairs of socks with my outfits, and tried to dress as close to "the worldly fashion" as those dress standards would allow. Good thing my hubby and I got out of that mess! Anyway, I LOVED the New Kids on the Block, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Diff'rent Strokes, Star Trek, The Goonies, Back to the Future, Full House, Family Ties, Growing Pains!! I had such a huge crush on Kirk Cameron!! Yeah, I had a perm and big bangs, and wore Wonder Woman underoos, too!!!
I'm going to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary in January! We don't have any kids.
I watched Mary Lou Retton land her perfect 10s on the vault and wanted to be like her, so my mom enrolled me in gymnastics... that didn't last long. I remember the "Battle of the Brians" during the winter Olympics. The first President I remember is Ronald Reagan; I was in PE at school when the Challenger exploded, and will never forget that feeling. I distinctly remember writing 1987 on my papers for school and thinking, "God, in 13 years, it'll be 2000," and thinking that was such a long time away!!
